So summer seems to be charging ahead with full force.  It’s been a hot one, and we hope you’ve been able to get out and enjoy it!

We know you’re busy with summer activities like camping, going to the beach, family vacations, etc. but we urge you to always remember your teeth too!

As we head into August, keep in mind that this is a great time for your dental exam and cleaning!  Call us before we head into fall where schedules get more hectic with school, sports, and other activities.

Here’s a photo of our sign on one of the hottest days this summer!

And remember, you can always visit us online at!

Nervous about your next dental visit?

Nitrous Oxide – Laughing Gas

If you’re a little nervous or anxious about your dental appointment, you don’t have to be!  We offer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, to any of our patients who want to try it.  There is no fee for this, we just want you to be as comfortable as possible!
What is it?  Nitrous oxide is a gas which you can breathe in and out. It is colorless, sweet smelling, and non-irritating.  The best part is that it means safer, quicker, and more comfortable dental care for you!
Nitrous oxide allows you to relax, which can greatly reduce the fear, nervousness, and tension associated with dental procedures. You do, however, remain in complete control.  You are fully conscious and can follow directions easily.  While you may not burst out laughing, you should feel very relaxed and comfortable.
It works very fast!  Nitrous oxide reaches the brain in about 20 seconds, and it only takes about 2-3 minutes to completely relax.
The amount of sedation can be changed very easily, by turning the amount of nitrous up or down.  The effects are almost instantaneous.  Other forms of sedation have more of a fixed duration of time because the effects of pills or IV sedation have a specific amount of time needed to run their course.  Nitrous can be administered only when needed and turned off as soon as the procedure is done.
When we do turn off the nitrous, we will then switch it to all oxygen.  The nitrous dissipates very quickly and you are able to go right back to your daily activities, such as work or school.  

We’re giving away an Apple iPad!

Yes, you read correctly, we are giving away an iPad to ONE lucky patient.

We will be holding a drawing on October 1st for this fantastic prize to be won by one of our patients.

How do you enter?

Well, it’s actually very easy!  All you have to do is tell a friend or family member about our office and have them schedule an appointment.  When they come in for their new patient appointment, you will be entered into the drawing!  Just make sure they give us your name so we know who to thank!

When you refer a second patient to our office, your name will be put in two additional times.  For the third patient, three additional times, etc.

And that’s not all!  We appreciate your referrals so much that you will also receive a special thank you gift from our office as well!
